Huawei B315 Router

At present the only 4G modems capable of providing full speed access to our network are the Huawei B315 (our current model) or the previous Huawei B593. If you don’t have a compatible modem, check out our Contract Planswhich include a new modem that’s yours to keep.

Unfortunately due to the way the network is locked to a range of IMEI numbers that were issued to the compatible modems, we can’t be certain that every modem will work.  If it was originally bought in New Zealand, there’s a decent likelihood.  But if it doesn’t, we’ve got some options to get you up and running.

Don’t worry.  If your modem turns out to be incompatible and you aren’t able to connect to our service we’ll give you the choice of upgrading to one of our plans that include a brand new modem, or you can cancel the plan without penalty.

We don’t sell additional data with the travel pack, but you can extend your hire for another week, which give you an extra 50GB of data. If you know you’re going to want more data, you can book additional time in advance.

We include a courier bag and instructions in the pack. Just put all the equipment back in the box you received it in, and call the number on the instruction sheet to have it collected. Our courier will not pick up from rural addresses so you’ll need to be in one of the larger towns or city.

You hire period starts the day after the pack is delivered and ends the day it is collected.

If you’re just using the modem, it’s really quick and easy! Just plug in the modem, follow the instructions that came in the box and you’ll be up and running in approximately 5 minutes.

If you’re using an external antenna, it can be really easy if you’re using a magnetic base (just slap it on and pass the cable through a window).  If you’re using a fixed base, you’re probably going to need some time.
